Hailsham town councillors joined with armed forces veterans, cadets and residents at a special service held on Sunday [26 June] to support Armed Forces Day 2016.
The civic service, organised by the Hailsham Branch of the Royal British Legion, was conducted at the Hailsham War Memorial, at which prayers of thanks were given for the contribution made by members of the Armed Forces, past and in the present, in serving the country.
Town Mayor Councillor Coltman said: “Local councillors are always honoured to, alongside members of the public, commemorate the heroics of so many men and women who make up the Armed Forces community including veterans, serving troops and their families and new recruits.”
“It’s wonderful that so many people turn out each year to celebrate Armed Forces Week and show their support.”
